English Abstract

In 2001, the Province of BC committed to establishing five service delivery regions for child and family services, each governed by a Regional Authority. In response, the Aboriginal community demanded the creation of five separate Regional Aboriginal Authorities (RAAs). This report documents the (as yet unfinished) process of establishing the RAAs, raises questions and concerns, and makes recommendations for change.
